Accommodation in Assos

Part of the charm of Assos lies in its simplicity. The rustic village, of about a 100 inhabitants, contains some fine examples of Venetian architecture commonly found on Kefalonia before the 1953 earthquake. Alongside these you will find an attractive collection of private houses, a small selection of villas and apartments, four or five tavernas and a mini-market. The remains of an imposing Venetian castle set on its own peninsula dominate the tiny village nestling in its horse-shoe harbour below.There is a small pebble beach near the village square but the more attractive and secluded coves are accessible by boat just around the headland and small motor-boats can be hired locally. The most famous beach of all on Kefalonia - Myrtos Bay, described as one of the seven best Mediterranean beaches - is only a fifteen-minute drive away and can also be reached by caique cruise from Assos.
